at "30 rock" in new york city. well, we begin with the new urgency in the fiscal cliff negotiations with now just 21 days, three weeks to reach a deal. today president obama returns to campaign mode taking the fiscal cliff message to detroit. yesterday the president and speaker boehner met privately at the white house, their first face-to-face meeting since they agreed last week to clear everyone else out of the negotiating room. so what happened? well, neither side revealed anything about the meetings, only saying that the lines of communication remain open. but yesterday another influential republican, senator bob corker from the senate banking commission said his party should consider the president's idea of raising tax rates on the wealthy. >> there is a growing group of folks that are looking at this and realizing that we don't have a lot of cards as it relates to the tax issue before year end. we have one house, that's it. the presidency and the senate is in the democrat's hands. a lot of people are putting forth a theory and i think it has merit where you go in and give the p
, but first, let's get the news live at 5:30 a.m. at 30 rock in new york city. >>> the effort to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff is now a two-man operation. president obama and speaker boehner. thank you. nobody else will be in the room. with 24 days before a year-end deadline, "the new york times" says boehner made the request to clear the negotiation room going forward, leaving it up to himself and the president to reach a deal to avoid automatic tax hikes and deep spending cuts. and while the two men may be negotiating privately, yesterday the president took his mess dwrooj the public, visiting a local virginia family as a part of his social media campaign. while sitting around the kitchen table, he told the family he felt optimistic. >> the message that i think we all want to send to members of congress is this is a solvable problem. the senate has already passed a bill that would make sure the middle class taxes do not go up next year by a single dime. just to be clear, i'm not going to sign any package that somehow prevents the top rate from going up for folks at the top 2%, but i do r

, not from the big cities. will they be there? will politicians who fear the gun lobby bear up under the strain of attack against any measure, no matter how small, to curb the power of the gun owners? the question tonight, what should and, most importantly, can be done to stop this kind of gun violence? and if nothing will work, say it. go ahead, say nothing can be done. i want to hear an american elected official tonight or any night say what happened on friday in newtown, connecticut, is just part of living in the free society of america. chuck todd is nbc's chief white house correspondent and political director, and chris cillizza is managing editor of postpolitics.com. gentlemen, i know we all saw this. this is what we used to call the topic sentence. i think this was the most telling, action-oriented piece of what the president said last night up in connecticut. let's listen to it now. >> in the coming weeks, i will use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens from law enforcement to mental health professionals to parents and educators in an effort aimed at
to places like new york city or cities in our state, and i have always said and will continue to say that those exceptions and the absence of a tougher federal legislation is not good for connecticut, not good for our cities, and, again, i also have firmly believed that these high capacity magazines are extremely dangerous. having said that, being in the top five, i think there have been people -- people have previously thought they have done enough in connecticut. i'm not saying i was one of those. i doubt that there's any one of those left. [ inaudible question ] now that it's been pointed out and i have taken the time to -- we could be compliant with the previous assault weapons ban limitation by going from a -- there's a common sense piece of legislation that could be taken up in the next session. >> we've been listening to a press conference by connecticut governor dannel malloy who noted there were many heroes in connecticut today, but there's also a great deal of pain, many unanswered questions, and grief beyond imagination. on this monday, december the 17th. >> all across thi
city, as to what he has been able to do, that shows certain important numbers going down. he'll talk more about that when he comes on the show. >> understand what i'm -- >> i know. >> understand what i'm saying about mike. mike has been out front on this for a very long time. i'm just talking about willie's concern and the concern of all of us that some law abiding nra members are not going to be moved and swayed by what michael bloomberg says, whereas a guy like joe manchin that grew up in this culture, that understands this culture. >> yeah. >> will be able to say, hey, listen, here's the deal. they're not coming for our guns. i'll be the first to stand in the way of my door and not let the government come for my guns or your guns. but you know what, i don't have a 10 millimeter glock because when i take my kids and grandkids out deer hunting, i don't need a glock or a bushmaster to take them down or to protect my house more importantly. >>> coming up, we will talk to new york city mayor michael bloomberg and senator elect chris murphy and tom brokaw and eugene robinson. >>> first,
others that remain wounded, paralyzed by guns. i see it on the front lines in my cities and other cities across america. the urgen sill is there. and now, hopefully, more people are seeing if you don't solve this problem, it's going to continue to pop up around our country. and this is the beauty of it in my opinion. this is almost the elegance of it. that the majority of americans, the majority of gun owners, the overall majority of members agree on sensible gun laws that will make a dramatic difference. 74% of nra members agree with most of us that if you have a criminal conviction, that criminals should not be able to buy guns. and even at higher levels, when you think about the reality, that if you are a suspected terrorist in america, you can go to the secondary gun market and buy a weapon and conduct the kind of terrorism we saw in mumbai which was done with automatic and semi-automatic weapons. this is the call of our country. to do what the overall majority thinks is right. one out of every two women murdered with a gun are murdered by an intimate, by someone that they know well.
's different. children die all the time in ener cities and the rest. it's always tragic. somehow or other this has pushed it all over the top, and i think that people will not be satisfied until this is accomplished and i'm very encouraged by what i'm hearing from those that have not necessarily been leaders on the gun safety issue before. >> what one of the issues is perhaps the issue of privacy for those who return from the military and others whose medical records need to be shared. i mean, this has been discussed in the last couple of days. what about the cutbacks in money for mental health programs and for care? what about these parents who may have a child who is a loner, who is spending all his time, and mostly these are young men of a certain age, deeply engaged in video games, not engaged in the outside world. perhaps they've been noticed by teachers, but not followed up. then at home they're hidden. >> well, two points. first up, i'll start with the second point. when patrick kennedy was in the congress and when his dad was in the senate we passed in a bipartisan way the mental
the people, you talk to folks all day long on the radio show that you have that's syndicated in cities and states. what do you make of the president picking up where he left off so often going straight to the folks at snoem. >> he is really mained a full court press that began in the campaign season and never ended after election day and i think that two-prong attack you reference is good politics and seems to be working in large part because there's a vacuum within the republican party or on the right generally. you could say speaker boehner is the head now for negotiation purposes but i don't think anybody is really the president's equal in this dynamic and he's exploiting that to great advantage. >> let me bring you in on this, david. last week we discussed this, as well. the first read team pointed out we see a small deal, if you will, addressing the tax rate and then the later next year deal with some of the other things such as entitlement reform. you have republicans conceding to the fact making a deal on tax rates. let's play a little back and forth and concerns out there alrea
to rebuild the infrastructure -- i mean, when a hurricane can close down the biggest city in the country for a week and the new jersey coast, we're not talking about handouts here. we need to rebuild tunnels and bridges and highways and roadways. you would think that would be above partisan bickering. >> it's been said before, al, we're still driving on eisenhower's highways and going to roosevelt's schools. you know, 60, 70-year-old things, we've got to rebuild this infrastructure. it will put a lot of people back to work. you're right on target on that. hurricane sandy showed that more clearly than anything else. >> senator tom harkin, thank you for your time tonight. >> thank you, al. thank you for your leadership. >>> up next, what does america look like? here's hant. it's not the republican party. you'll want to hear what nancy pelosi had to say about this picture. >>> plus, the great rosie perez is here. actress, director, activist. she'll talk about change and progress after the election. stay with us. welcome to chevy's year-end event. so, the 5.3-liter v-8 silverado can tow up t
to be on the verge of crisis. first, let's get to the news live at 5:30 here at 30 rock in new york city. we begin with 25 days to go until the year end fiscal cliff deadline for the first time in days president obama and speaker boehner spoke on the phone yesterday. both men agreeing not to publicly characterize how the conversation went. but the stalemate in negotiations entered bold new territory yesterday with treasury secretary tim geithner suggesting the white house is ready to go off the cliff if republicans refuse to raise taxes on the top 2%. >> if republicans do not agree to that, is the administration prepared to go over the fiscal cliff? >> absolutely. again, there's no prospect to an agreement that doesn't involve those rates going up on the top 2% of the wealthiest members. only 2%. the size of the problem in some sense is so large it can't be solved without rates going up. again, there is broad recognition of that reality now. >> one fallback option, republicans are reportedly considering to accept tax cuts for the middle class, allow rates to go up to the wealthiest and then start
a responsibility here. legislatures across the country have responsibleties. city councils have responsibleties. but they will move very decisively if they know people are behind them. and there's no question that people are behind decisive action now. >> congressman courtney, you sat in that room last night and i know what it is to be among people that have lost something for no reason. but i couldn't imagine 20 caskets with 4-year-olds to 10 years old. i went through that one time this year with a 4-year-old. i mean, when americans are seeing children being buried, how does any of us walk away without feeling compelled to do something, no matter how cynical or no matter how much we've given up? >> when the president did the role call of the children's names and the reaction in the room, i've been to a number of funerals in my day, as well, reverend. and i've never experienced anything as raw and just agonizing as listening to the response that was happening, again, all over that auditorium. you know, i was telling john this morning, i was driving through the back roads in connecticut this mor
